Fukuro-Matsuri

Fukuro Matsuri and Tokyo Yosakoi 2018

Ikebukuro’s Fukuro Matsuri originated in the late 1960s to promote the area’s shopping district but has since grown into a large scale event taking over the entire neighborhood and spanning over two separate weekends. Taiko drumming, traditional dances, musical performances, yosakoi teams, mikoshi parades and street vendors – the festival has all the traditional matsuri flavor and more. Check the website (Japanese only) for a full itinerary and performance times for all four days.
